England's chief nursing officer, Ruth May, has announced £52 million to transition from "bulky paper records" to cohesive digitised maternity records.
NHS England and NHSX have appointed Julia Gudgeon as the first national digital midwife to oversee the digital records and provide national leadership in digitising maternity services.
As part of the move, Gudgeon will work with NHS chief midwife Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent and be part of NHSX’s Digital Child Health and Maternity team.
